Serving the scholastic field hockey and lacrosse community since 1998

Oct. 2, 2015 — Friday Statwatch for games played through Sept. 30

Hello, friends. We’re back with you for Statwatch, the part of our site that ties in all of the numbers that make the game of field hockey make sense across the generations.

The most statistically significant event last week was the end of the Watertown (Mass.) shutout streak. What was amazing about that 30-game streak was that it lasted over parts of three seasons. This meant that head coach Eileen Donahue had to get the most out of three completely different cohorts of players on a consistent basis, which is absolutely remarkable in this record-setting goal-scoring era of scholastic field hockey.

As we have celebrated the record-setting exploits of upperclass players such as Haley Schleicher and Meredith Sholder, it is exciting to see underclasswomen such as freshman Mackenzie Allessie and sophomore Erin Matson, and to understand that they will be thrilling crowds for years to come. It’s amazing to think that the finest three single-season goal-scoring performances by both freshmen and sophomores have all occurred within the past six years, and these two phenoms lead a cohort of skilled players.

What you see below reflects games through the end of play on Wednesday, which means that it is entirely possible you might see something different in the column to the right, since Daily Statwatch is updated in real time. I encourage coaches and student managers to register for and use the MaxPreps.com platform, and we encourage you to get your fellow teams to enter their information there as well so that we can aim for as complete a statistical picture of the country as we can.

Here’s what we’ve compiled thus far, thanks to, amongst others, MaxPreps.com, Advance Media, The Harrisburg Patriot-News, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, MassLive.com, The Washington Post, The Reading Eagle, Newsday, and The Ann Arbor News:
